These are the reasons why I love this phone and think it is the best phone so far. Firstly, the most Powerful Chipset Kirin 980 for greatest performance, The amazing triple cameras that sit on top of the DXO MARKS RATINGS, The beautiful design, quality screen display. And many successful new innovations. It is the most interesting phone on the market right now. I will get one when the price goes down. Better still am waiting for Honor 20 that would sure come with the Kirin 980

Oh well I am not surprised nor boarded because I know Huawei makes most beautiful phones with best of colours. Great softwares but the Quality of the body is not top notch. But The burned text has never boarded me one bit so long as the phone passes scratch text. That one is very important. My phone does not go through burned text when am using it but it goes through scratches and touch breaking when they fall

p.s: funny how someone compares the build quality of a 1000 dollar phone to a 50 dollar phone. haha. what a joke.

Ehh. That's what happens when a cheap phone with cheap internals and cheapo build quality pretends like premium.

And for that price ($928 before shipping fee), you would expect a more premium build quality than this. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I wanted to buy this phone so badly but I have decided to buy Note 9. So disappointing to see this phone has major issues like glugate etc.

Okey, let's be fair here, that is hardly a fail. We all know that Jerry is a heavily muscular guy and you can see that it takes a lot of his force to bend the phone.

Well that's hugely disappointing. I thought they would improve the durability upon P20 Pro which got a cracked display when bent, but they decided to make it even more fragile instead. This is sad to see especially when last year's Mate 10 Pro passed his bend test with no problem whatsoever.

You can notice in the video, that notification icons aren't well aligned with the notch.

Huawei did a great job this time around, neither the Note9 or X S Max have the incredible battery life or fast charging of the Mate 20 Pro, and neither have as incredible Camera as the Mate 20 Pro.

Also we should be focusing on performance and shouldn't cut it with blades or such shitty things. I can bet if you do such thing with the world's strongest phone 3310 it will also bent. Try to understand my point bro.
